Being an Artist, maybe one of the most painstakingly difficult pursuits one can strive for but I will never quit. How could I at this point in my life? How can I set the example for my son, if I just gave up at this moment? Believe me, I've thought about it more than once. Simply throw everything I've worked for up to this point, give up on the sacrifice and dedication to this craft. It would be easy to get a side job and not have a quarter of the stress I put on myself.
To give up now would be the equivalent of selling my soul. I will never quit. Art is my true purpose. It will be a real-life demonstration, for my son, that through hard work, education and perseverance, one can make almost any dream become reality.
